What happened?

Post by jdaw1 » 21:16 Fri 29 Oct 2010

What happened? There is no port, and my wine glass is empty. How could this be?

You poor soul - you must have moved to France! Are you in need of more supplies? If you can break through the blockade of striking LFF then we may be able to help.

I refuse to believe that France has run out of wine. There is no excuse for having an empty glass, even if you have no port.

Surely a glass of red wine + a small glass of cognac = a glass of port.

Should we not be encouraging TPF France to be making his own fortified red wine? He could even use red wine from the Douro region of Portugal. Grape brandy should be no problem. Even Metaxa make that.

The Port Forum Codex of 1659 wrote: Rule 47(b): Where a member of :tpf: finds himself stranded in a Port-free territory, whether by design or unfortunate circumstance, he may manufacture Emergency Port using natural, locally-available ingredients without fear of reprimand.

More like Pineau des Charentes, unfortunately. A very attractive drink in its own right, but not quite Port...
